|My beloved riding boots (before)|
|Dry, scratched up and wrinkly boots in need of some TLC|
|Mink oil is essential for good leather maintenance|
|Damp boots without protective mink oil|
|...generous dollop of mink oil....|
|..massaged into leather...|
|Mink oil saturated leather|
Take a clean cloth, wipe off any excess grease and proceed to polish in a rapid back and forth motion. I find it easiest to wear the boots at that point, to stabilize and fill out. The finished result is a beautiful buffed sheen which is waterproof and ready for the saltiest winter roads and wet weather, hurray!
|Boots ready for the winter|
This pair is ready for navy skinny jeans, Petit Bateau stripey sailor top and navy Barbour Liddesdale. Now please excuse me while I repeat this process with my other 234,902,390 pairs of shoes. Tip jar's over there.
